Having complained about this on a number of occasions, I’m hoping they will have moved the hat-seller tent that is conveniently situated directly between the grandstand and the last hurdle/fence.
The net effect of this is that the lower tier of the grandstand (i.e. about 80% of the grandstand crowd) cannot see the action from about the 2nd-last to over the last.
When this was pointed out to the management, I was informed that "they do pay a lot of money to be here". Unlike the punters of course (13/15 quid a throw). I told them they had to decide whether they were running a racecourse or a milliners. Blank stares all round.
Anyway, I’ve got my boy scout’s knife and those guy-ropes don’t look that thick. Windy tomorrow too.
